The Daily Movie Quote: Any Given Sunday
"On any given Sunday you're gonna win or you're gonna lose. The point is - can you win or lose like a man?" - Tony D'Amato, Any Given Sunday (1999)

Synopsis: The life of a professional football team that resembles one in the NFL. An eclectic cast of characters that offer you an aging coach, a new female owner, a veteran quarterback and the rookie poised to replace him.
Fact: Dennis Quaid's house in the film is actually Miami Dolphins, Dan Marino's house.
Trivia: Much of the film is loosely based on the book "You're Okay, It's Just a Bruise: A Doctor's Sideline Secrets About Pro Football's Most Outrageous Team," by Rob Huizenga.
Movie Mistake: The Los Angeles game scoreboard shows 21-7 while the television broadcast displays 21- 14.
My Take: Any Given Sunday isn't my favorite sports film in the world and it's not even close to being Oliver Stone's best, but since the NFL season is in full effect I thought it was appropriate.
